Well, we officially have both (ahead of schedule),
so it’s time to compare notes!
After a leaky weekend, Gaga’s new single from the upcoming ARTPOP hit airwaves this morning, a week before its intended release—and Mother Monster was NOT happy about it. She unleashed a fiery Twitter rant before commiserating with Perry about their misfortune. “Applause” and “Roar” are now engaged in a battle of the fans, but our pop queens certainly aren’t encouraging it. We’ll have to wait and see how they do on the charts, but I’m more excited in seeing them BOTH take the stage at the VMAs, as Perry was just announced to perform “Roar.” Music is fun again.
